Eye of the Hippo - Katavi National Park

Gautam & Friends visit Western Tanzania

In September of this year, Gautam along with 10 friends visited two very unique and very different national parks tucked in the far western corner of Tanzania: Katavi National Park & Mahale Mountains National Park. We’ve included a small selection of his photos below and encourage taking a look at his personal photography site.

Tanzania - Katavi and Mahale detail

 

Katavi National Park offers its few visitors a true wilderness of tangled woodland, floodplains, seasonal lakes and exceptional game viewing along the Katuma River including eland, sable and roan antelopes, large numbers of hippo and elephant as well as lion and leopard.

Here’s just a few of Gautam’s fantastic photos from Katavi, click here for his full gallery:

Mahale Mountains National Park, home to some of Africa’s last remaining wild chimpanzees, is remotely-set on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, inaccessible by road, and it sometimes looks more like an Indian Ocean beach holiday than a chimp-trekking destination deep in the African interior.

New Greystoke Mahale Video

Nomad Tanzania just released a series of 3-minute videos about some of our favorite places including this one about Greystoke Mahale:

Remotely-set on the shores of Tanzania’s Lake Tanganyika, Greystoke Mahale is your home-base when trekking through the Mahale Mountains with one of the largest remaining populations of wild chimpanzees. It is also consistently praised for its tranquil setting and exceptional hospitality.
